Common reasons for the breakdown of a marriage

The reasons why couples divorce are as numerous and unique as the couples themselves. As each marriage progresses through time the spouses’ two personalities ebb and flow – one stronger at one time, the other weak; the two personalities melding and harmonizing for a period, and then dramatically contrasting. Each conflict is different from what the same couple may have experienced at a different time in their lives and it is different from what another couple may experience even when the disputed issue is the same or similar.

What to do with the house in a divorce

You have memories, fond or otherwise, of purchasing your home, whether it was your first starter home or the home of your dreams. You moved in, decorated it, made it your own, and lived your life in it for years. Now, the question of what to do with your home is one of the more difficult ones to answer as you go through the divorce process.

Parenting Time and Happy Childhoods

The traditional vision for raising a child involves two married parents - each pitching in with feedings and diapers, sharing play time and reading bedtime stories, and later helping with homework, and attending school events as a family. You and your spouse may have even achieved this vision for a brief period of time. Now, however, you have decided to divorce.

Tackling the tricky topic of a prenuptial agreement

Broaching the subject of a prenuptial agreement is seldom easy. You are probably already imagining the emotional response you may get from your intended, and you may even fear your request for a prenuptial agreement may jeopardize your relationship and cause your beloved to reconsider the whole idea of marrying you.

Physical versus legal custody: what you need to know

When making the decision to separate and divorce, Virginia parents are understandably concerned with the effect their decision will have on their children. Divorce will certainly have an impact on the children, but parents can alleviate any negative impact through thoughtful, sustainable custody agreements and orders.

As a creative, are you creating property division concerns?

Painting, sculpting, writing, taking photographs, producing films, composing music, creating video games, etc. may provide you an emotional, physical, or even spiritual outlet. Many people even earn a living or additional income from their creative work.
